  2. NOC, where's the professionalism??

  4. Why can't we tell pts/families we're understaffed?
    It is all about illusion. You can not say you are "short-staffed" as according to managment, you are not. If you would only manage your time better, stick to the scripting, and just check the...

  5. Infection with normal WBC
    Immune compromised? HIV? Viral as opposed to bacterial? A fungal infection may not be bacterial, and may not increase WBC? Hard to tell without whole picture, however, very interesting. ...

  6. Is This Bullying?
    No, because then the male nurse would think unpure thoughts as he is spooning jello into your mouth. And that could be harrassment. Cause I heard that all male nurses are sick and tired of female...

  7. Is This Bullying?
    Well make darn sure you are not trapped in a car or a closed space with someone eating jello. It could get you all gelled up unintentionally, and you could loose your license.

  8. Persistent Falsification of Data
    Not to mention, blood glucose of 300 or above would warrant a call to the MD for sliding scale insulin. That must have been done, or the resident wouldn't be going to the diabetic specialist. ...

  10. POA/HIPAA violation
    Good rule of thumb--don't ever access any medical record for yourself or a family member--because the only way you have access is that the facility allows you to have the ability to complete your job...

  11. reported a nurse stealing narcs and not giving meds, shes friends with the DON :(
    YIKES!! Her yelling at the nurses station that she gives her meds when she clearly doesn't--one would think that they would be under added scrutiny and start giving their meds. So not the brightest...

  15. Do you chart lies?
    You absolutely know that a patient has been lying in a soiled bed for hours. If you need to scrape poop off a patient, and the skin underneath is all broken down, you KNOW this. If a bed is drenched...

  16. Do you chart lies?
    I did not read all of the responses however, my first thought is this--IF a patient were to lose function due to a too tight restraint, If there is skin breakdown due to restraints, incontinence, or...

  17. I have taken the NCLEX twice and failed, NEED HELP!

    No harm in showing up in person. Or to call the clerk of the unit, and ask if the person is on the unit. Sometimes they can give you the "he's on vacation" or "in a meeting" and when would be best...

    Yep. Only then it is called "floating" and a nurse doesn't take an assignment, they just go to be an "extra set of hands". And their assignment is to get vitals, answer call lights, set patients up...

    Not well thought out clinically if the receptionist is doing lab draws, and other non-clinical staff are rooming patients and doing some vitals. Sounds to me as if your main focus, according to...
